Provided by Pat Nyswonger

Categories     Main Dish

Time 1h

Number Of Ingredients 16

4-long bamboo skewers
2 pounds lamb, cut into 2-inch pieces. (I used leg of lamb)
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
12 large garlic cloves, peeled
2 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
pinch of white pepper
1 cup olive or vegetable oil


  • Soak the bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Prepare a hot charcoal grill
  • Add the garlic, fresh herbs, lemon juice, oil salt and pepper to a 8x8 dish and whisk to combine. Add the lamb chunks and toss to coat completely. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. When the lamb is well marinated, thread the chunks of meat onto the bamboo skewers, brush the lamb skewers with additional olive oil and transfer them to the hot grill when it is ready. Cook for 5 minutes and turn the skewers. Continue to cook and turn every 5 minutes until done to your likeness, about 12-15 minutes for medium-rare.
  • Add the garlic to a small food processor and process until finely minced, stop the machine and add the egg yolks, mustard, salt and pepper. Process for 30 seconds. With the motor still running, slowly, add the oil and as the mixture starts thickening, add the oil a little more quickly and continue processing until all the oil is incorporated.

Time 8h45m

Yield 8 to 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients 17

4 pounds top round lamb
2 tablespoons minced garlic (4 to 5 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
4 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves
1/2 cup mild olive oil
1/2 cup dry red wine
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Kosher salt
4 small red onions
4 pints cherry tomatoes
Wooden skewers
1 cup good chicken stock
1/2 cup good olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Cut the lamb in 1 1/2-inch cubes. You should have about 40 cubes. Combine the garlic, rosemary, thyme, olive oil, red wine, vinegar, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium bowl. Add the lamb cubes, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight or for up to 2 days. Toss occasionally.
  • Heat a charcoal grill with coals. Spread the coals in 1 tight layer on the grill.
  • Cut the red onions in quarters and separate each quarter into 3 or 4 sections. Loosely thread 3 or 4 pieces of lamb alternately with sections of onion on skewers. Sprinkle both sides of the lamb with salt and pepper. Next place 4 or 5 cherry tomatoes on skewers, threading them through the stem of the tomato. Rub the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. First, place the lamb skewers on the hot grill and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, turning 2 or 3 times, until the lamb is medium rare. Approximately 5 minutes before the lamb is done, place the tomato skewers on the grill, turning once, until seared on the outside but still firm inside.
  • For the sauce, bring the chicken stock, olive oil, and lemon juice to a boil in a medium pot. Lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until reduced in half. Add the rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the pepper. Serve the sauce on the side.

Lamb Kabobs image

A special Mediterranean marinade that flavors and tenderizes the meat, plus a bit of grilling technique, produce succulent, juicy lamb kabobs every time. Watch the video and read the full post for more tips and information.

Provided by Suzy Karadsheh

Categories     Dinner

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 ½ lb boneless leg of lamb
Kosher salt and black pepper
1 medium yellow onion
5 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cardamom
1 cup packed fresh parsley
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice and zest of 1 lemon


  • Cut the lamb into 1 to 1 1/2 -inch cubes or pieces and put them in a large bowl. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.
  • In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade, combine the onion, garlic, spices, parsley, olive oil and lemon juice. Cover and run the processor until everything is finely chopped (you should end up with a thick onion marinade).
  • Pour the onion marinade over the lamb and mix well to make sure all the lamb is well coated with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. (If you do not have time, leave the kabobs to marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes).
  • Brush the grates of a gas grill (or an indoor griddle) with oil and heat.
  • Shake excess marinade off and thread the lamb pieces on some long skewers, allowing a little room between pieces (I used 6 wooden skewers that have been soaked in water).
  • Assemble the lamb kabobs in one single layer over your heated grill or griddle. Grill over high heat, turning each kabob one-quarter turn every couple minutes, until the meat is browned all over, anywhere from 7 to 9 minutes, depending on how well you like your lamb cooked (7 minutes on my grill produced medium-rare kabobs).

Grilled Lamb on Rosemary Skewers image

Lamb on rosemary skewers has to be one of the oldest recipes in the world. In ancient times, the meat could just as easily have been goat, or something wilder, and fish was no doubt also a candidate. The idea of cutting branches of rosemary and using them as skewers must certainly have occurred to humans soon after they figured out how to build fires. You want rosemary branches with woody stalks, if possible. But if the stalks are too flimsy to poke through the lamb, run a pilot hole through with a skewer, and be sure to grill the lamb and figs separately because they'll cook at different rates. You might throw together a little basting sauce of lemon, garlic and a little more rosemary, but the skewers are just fine without it, and have been for thousands of years.

Time 20m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 8

2 pounds boneless lamb shoulder, cut into chunks
10 to 20 fresh figs
Rosemary branches
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, more or less
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary


  • Start a charcoal or wood fire or heat a gas grill; fire should be moderately hot. Thread lamb and figs onto rosemary branches, three or four chunks or figs per skewer. Do not mix meat and figs on same skewer.
  • Brush lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix together the lemon juice, garlic and minced rosemary and brush a little of this mixture on lamb and figs.
  • Grill, turning skewers as each side browns and taking care to avoid flare-ups; total cooking time should be from 6 to 10 minutes for medium-rare meat, and 4 or 5 minutes for the figs. Meat will become slightly more done after you remove it from grill, so take this into account.

Grilled Lamb Kebabs With Smoky Peaches image

Taking a cue from the hot-weather regions of the world, John Willoughby and Chris Schlesinger go heavy with the seasoning here, but the key is when that happens. Instead of a marinade, or a spice rub, they grill the lamb and season it after with garlic, basil, vinegar and Tabasco sauce. It's a great way to add big flavor without spending all day in the kitchen.

Categories     dinner, main course

Time 35m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 cup yogurt
1/2 cup minced fresh mint
2 pounds boneless lamb leg
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon curry powder
Salt and freshly cracked pepper
2 peaches, pitted and halved (not peeled)
1 tablespoon roughly chopped garlic
1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
4 to 8 shots Tabasco, depending on your desire for heat


  • Build a fire in your grill; when the coals are all covered with gray ash and the temperature is medium-hot (you can hold your hand 5 inches above the grill for 3 to 4 seconds), you are ready to cook. (For a gas grill, turn all burners to high, lower cover, and heat for 15 minutes, then turn burners to medium-high.)
  • Mix the yogurt and mint together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Trim the lamb of most but not all fat and cut it into 32 large chunks, about 1 inch square. Add them to a large bowl with the olive oil, curry powder, salt and pepper, and toss well to coat, then thread onto 4 skewers.
  • Put the skewers on the grill directly over the coals. Also put the peaches on the grill, cut side down, and cook until just slightly charred and softened, about 6 minutes. Take off the grill and cut into large wedges (about 6 per peach).
  • At the same time, cook the lamb, turning to expose all 4 sides to the direct heat of the coals, until done to your liking, about 2 to 3 minutes per side (8 to 12 minutes total) for medium rare. (To check for doneness, cut into one of the chunks and check to see if it is cooked to your liking - remove from the heat when it is slightly less done than you want it to be when you eat it.)
  • Put the peaches and lamb into a large bowl. Add the garlic, basil, vinegar and Tabasco, toss to coat, season with more salt and pepper if needed, and serve (over rice if you wish), accompanied by the yogurt and mint.

Summer Lamb Kabobs image

This is an awesome treat for the grill. We raise grass-fed lambs that are weaned naturally. Experimenting with lamb recipes over the past 15 years has become a hobby. Lamb and garlic go so well together. In this recipe, the combination of herbs and spices complement this meat and make a great family-and-friend favorite.
